My airbag light came on in my 97 sahara. There is no grinding or clicking noise behind the steering wheel that would indicate a bad clock spring. Is there a common ground that comes loose or i should check that could be causing this?

Thanks
Sam

Does the light come on and stay on all the time? Every vehicle I have had has done that and I never have had any problems aith the airbags. Used to fret over it but just gave up. Have you checked the fuses yet?

Will come on and stay on for awhile then go off. whenever the airbag light comes on, the ac blower stops working and the brake lights go out to. fuses are good first thing i checked.

I'm not sure a/b the airbag or the break lights, but i do know that the top two speeds on my ac blower do not work at the moment...getting hot, so i may have to go see the dealer

I have had a similar problem twice since I bought my '02 TJ last October. I would shut the engine of with the key, run into the store, come back out and start it, the airbag light would stay on, the radio would quit working along with the turn signals and the wipers, maybe more but that is all that I checked. If I put the key into the air bag "on/off" and turn it off then on everything comes back to life and all is good again. I guess these things must have a road gremlin or two in them. Scooby

Could it be a bad connection behind a gauge panel?

Yea, the bad thing about it is, its messing with my turn signals, the ac blower isnt working, and the bag lights is still on. All of which has to work and the airbag light off to pass inspection in VA, and guess what......i need an inspection hahaha

Buy a code scanner and see why your lights are on . I personally have the airbag and engine light on . I pulled the codes for the engine light and it is caused by evaporative emissions . I have a custom fuel tank and have removed some stock fuel components . Also I have removed the fuse for the air bags . Now I know and you can too !

I did the trick where you put the ignition into the "on" position 3 times w/in 5 seconds. It kicked out the p0138 code (post-cat O2 sensor). I assume I need to replace that but I also assume that is a different issue than the airbag/blower motor.
PS - My blower motor works in the lowest position but it won't blow any harder than that.
?? Thanks for your help!

DMW,
Check the blower motor resistor.

I am not sure about jeeps, but on almost any other car ive seen with this problem it has been the blower motor resistor burning out.

I have had several Jeeps that have had this problem.It is usually(at least in my cases) been a bad connection in the back of the cluster.When it happens again.SMACK down on the dash above the cluster..It should make the light go out..Let us know.Randy
